Red, White and Blue Part 3

Hello Readers. Today is the last of a three part series. This last part is the easiest refashion of all. These skinny jeans caught my eye at a clothes swap. I love red. When I brought them home I saw how they picked up the red of the plaid shirt I told you about a couple days ago.

These pants are too long. I could have just cuffed them but then they wouldn't fit into my boots.(Believe me, I tried it.) I grabbed some scissors and cut of the bottom 4 inches and left the raw edge as it was. It will fray a bit. I don't mind a little fraying on denim. They will be tucked into boots anyway. No one will see them until spring or summer when they will look cute and casual with flats or sandals.

Here is the finished clothes all put together. I snapped a picture when I was out. Sometimes I don't have anyone to take the pictures for me, so I used this mirror in a store. (I really need a camera with a self timer.) The baby carrier covers quite a bit of this outfit, but you can get the idea. And I obviously got out of the house for a little while, so that is a win in my book.

Thank you for reading, now go make something fun for yourself.

Thanks Jenny_o. I would love to wear dresses and fancy delicate things everyday but real life doesn't allow for that right now. It's OK though, the little gut is worth it.
